Focus Features has released the new trailer for 7 Days in Entebbe, starring Daniel Brühl, Rosamund Pike, Eddie Marsan, Ben Schnetzer, Lior Ashkenazi , and Denis Ménochet. The film is directed by José Padilha and based on a script by Gregory Burke. 7 Days in Entebbe is based on the true story of four hijackers in 1976 who took over a plane flying from Tel Aviv to Paris, and forced it to land in Entebbe, Uganda. Their demand was to have dozens of Palestinian terrorists released.

Principal photography began for 7 Days in Entebbe on November 14 in Malta, with production also done in the U.K. In the real-life event, two Palestinian and two German hijackers took a plane hostage and directed it to Entebbe, Uganda. The film will follow the hijackers, the hostages, then-Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabiin and upcoming Prime Minister Shimon Peres dealing with whether or not to try to free the hostages or to negotiate. It will also follow the French crew who refused to leave when they were released with the other French hostages.

Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner is producing alongside Kate Solomon. José Padilha is known for directing 2014’s RoboCop, episodes of the TV series Narcos, and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within.

The story of the Entebbe hijacking has been told before. Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back) directed the NBC TV movie Raid on Entebbe, starring Peter Finch and Charles Bronson, in 1976. The TV movie Victory At Entebbe starred Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster at ABC in the same year.

7 Days in Entebbe will be released on March 16, 2018 in the U.S. Were you aware of the story of the Entebbe hijacking? What did you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comments.
